The Gusto Disco con Yuca is made with a tropical starch (Yuca) which is derived from cassava plant. The all natural yuca added to the dough makes it an excellent source of healthy carbohydrates.
The cassava plant is a crop grown in the tropics and subtropics of South America. The yuca derived from the cassava plant has a potato like flavor that pairs especially well recipes that call for garlic and onion. Many people prefer to use this dough when preparing spicy dishes because the starch flavor helps to balance the harshness of spicier recipes.
